Pitcher Profile: At Least The Cubs Didn’t Trade Jake Arrieta!

The Cubs.  The lovable losers.  The trade first and ask questions later...ers... Say what you want about what the Cubs are doing, but I liked their blockbuster deal with the A's.  John Kruk was slamming it on Sunday Night Baseball (while my boy Rick Porcello got a ***** slap of regression), but then again I'm a Brewers fan and not a Cubs fan! Last year, the Cubs sold Scott...

Jake Arrieta and Cubs nearly untouchable against Red Sox

After silencing the Red Sox and their fans for 72/3 innings Monday night, Jake Arrieta received the ultimate compliment at sold-out Fenway Park after falling short in his bid for a no-hitter. A standing ovation. Arrieta came within four outs in his latest no-hit bid before Steven Drew hit Arrieta's career-high 120th and final pitch for a clean single to right field. That barely...

Jake Arrieta Gets ‘Goosebumps’ From Fenway Park Standing Ovation (Video)

BOSTON — The Fenway Park crowd sure knows how to show a worthy adversary some love. Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta received a standing ovation Monday upon walking off the mound after nearly tossing a no-hitter against the Boston Red Sox. It was interesting to see an opposing pitcher garner such an ovation, but it certainly was well-deserved given how well Arrieta pitched in...

Red Sox Finish June With 12-16 Record, Still Alive In AL East Race (Video)

After failing to get a hit off Jake Arrieta until the 8th inning and losing, 2-0, the Boston Red Sox finished the month of June under .500 with a 12-16 record. That said, they still find themselves within striking range in the scuffling AL East. The team is only 6.5 games behind the Toronto Blue Jays for first place in the division. The problem? Boston’s bats can’t seem to come...

Red Sox Tip Cap To Jake Arrieta Following Near No-Hitter At Fenway Park

BOSTON — Jim Bunning will remain a trivia answer for at least one more day. Chicago Cubs starter Jake Arrieta made a bid Monday to become the first pitcher to no-hit the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park since Bunning accomplished the feat back in 1958. Arrieta fell four outs shy, but the Red Sox couldn’t help but tip their cap following a 2-0 loss. “Their guy was really, really...

Sox Nearly No-No'd By Cubs' Arrieta; Lose, 2-0

Arrieta Starts The 8th (FenwayNation Photo)For those of us who were there tonight at America's Most Cramped Ballpark (even more cramped when it's 89 degrees at game time), it seemed like it was destined to happen. "It" was a no-hitter by Chicago's slick starter Jake Arrieta (do you think the Orioles would like him back?). Then, the unlikeliest of protagonists—Stephen...

Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitchers Week 14: Jake Arrieta and Alex Wood

Every week I will compile a list of all the two-start pitchers during the next period. Not every player on this list should be used, let’s make that clear up front, but if you are desperate and need to pick someone up, maybe you can grab a pitcher from this list.  I will give you the players name and who his opponents are. Make sure to pay attention to his opponents and that is...

Reds have won 18 of last 20 at Wrigley

The Chicago Cubs are in the NL Central basement and scuffling at the plate during their latest slide. They may not need to produce much with Jake Arrieta taking the mound. Arrieta looks to continue his outstanding stretch and end the Cubs' dismal one in his first career meeting with hot-hitting Devin Mesoraco and the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Chicago (31-43)...

Get To Know Him - Jake Arrieta

Jake Arrieta is currently pitching in his 5th MLB season and before this season has never been successful. There was not much hype surrounding Arrieta coming into the league, as he was originally drafted in the 31st round by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2004 but decided to attend Texas Christian University. In 2007 Arrieta entered the draft again and was taken in the 5th round by the...
